August Sketch Challenge!

Time for another great sketch challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles! This month the sketches are by our own Tracey Sabella. I chose to do the layout sketch but of course you can do the card, layout or both to be in the running for the prize from Daysigns. Here is the sketch:

The twist is to include a butterfly somewhere in your project. Here is my take on the challenge:

This summer on our RV road trip we went to visit Mount St. Helens. We stopped first at the Visitor's Center (can't miss something educational!) They had lots of great displays there all about the volcano and the big eruption. They also had a webcam that showed the conditions on the top of the mountain which was about 30 miles away. The screen was completely white. A helpful sign nearby explained that the webcam was not broken and was just showing that the top was in a cloud because we were after all in the Pacific Northwest. Well bummer! We didn't want to drive all that way to have zero visibility. Rain in the summer! (says the girl from California, lol) So we gave up our plans to visit the actual volcano. However, there was a lovely lake and wetlands right next to the center with a two mile loop around and through it. Some sun was peeking through and it was beautiful. You just have to enjoy the journey and not worry so much about your destination I guess. ;-)

Go see all the great examples the SEM design team made to inspire you and be sure to link up your project by the end of the month for a chance to win the prize!
